A little about me...
HI have come to a realization that I am, indeed, 56.I forget this fact, but I do sense a difference in life. I seem to have a weight shift (not good) and aches and pains that were not with me before. Wow, I sound like an old lady. I always used to say that I never wanted to be a cranky old lady. I am grateful for the days; each and every one. I love the sunshine and seem to marvel in all of the kinds of weather that abound here in NW Indiana. I am one who used to live near the Pacific Ocean...I do miss it. I am happy, however, that we have Lake Michigan nearby. I am also happy to live near Chicago. I love opera and theater. Chicago has them both. I wasn't going to be online anymore, but I must always have hope that perhaps I may meet someone that I might truly love. I do feel that love is the only thing that really matters in this life. We certainly are wealthy beyond measure if we have love abounding. I love animals, and am so glad they are here with us in this world. I used to want to live in Italy. I love art and do believe that some of the best can be found in Florence (of course, the Art Institute in Chicago isn't too bad either). Now, however, I am happy wherever I am. I also love the bagpipes and Scotland.
About the one I'm looking for...
I used to have a list of attributes that I desired in a mate. These days, well, as long as he is happy within himself and knows how to laugh and love...then he qualifies as one for me. I do need one who understands the importance of work and knows how to balance it with play. I was always shy as a child, and I actually find it rather charming in a guy. I like guys who do not need to boast or brag. I also cherish guys who can love animals and children. A sensitive touch and a kind heart go far with me. I do like intelligence. I like one who is happy to be alive and is aware of how precious life is.
I'd just like to add...
Life is short and time ticks away for everyone. We have to make our lives come alive!
